AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

Arun Gandhi, grandson of spiritual and political leader Mahatma Gandhi, is scheduled to speak in Augusta on Jan. 18.

He will be the keynote speaker at the 7th Annual Interfaith Service of Celebration, hosted by the Progressive Religious Coalition of Augusta.

Arun Gandhi's speech, "Lessons from My Grandfather," will center around "the legacy of non-violence that changed American history and inspired Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.," according to a press release. 

Arun Gandhi, who now lives in the U.S., is carrying on the family name and message through his lectures, on his Washington Post blog and through the Gandhi Worldwide Education Institute.

The service, title "Keeping the Dream Alive: Why Dr. King Still Matters," will be held at 6:45 p.m. at Trinity on the Hill United Methodist Church at 1330 Monte Sano Avenue.
